Have you ever been puzzled by a language structure you hear a student use or wondered why an often-used activity fails to work with some students?

Studying your students' language can help you answer questions like these.

The videos provide examples of real students working in class, and the workbook shows you how to analyse their language and then apply those techniques to your own classroom.

**You can access the videos on the DVD provided with the book or online on the Oxford Teacher's Club, at www.oup.com/elt/teacher/ell (click on the Teaching Resources tab above).

Reviews

  • '...Exploring Learner Language has great potential for making an impact on what we know about foreign/second language teaching and learning. With this manual in hand, teachers are well equipped to better understand their students' processes of language learning and to generate knowledge that is helpful both locally in their classrooms and to the field of second language learning in general.'
